As humans we strive for bigger and better things in life, you know the job, the house , the car. Our society in the West encourages us to want more and need more, to never be satisfied with what we have got and to envy those who have more than we do. If you stop to think about it it’s impossible to ever achieve peace as we are constantly chasing the next thing.
But if you stop and look at what you already have, is it enough? For most of us it is, are you secure,warm, fed and loved – think about the rest of the world and how much they would love those few things. If you live in the now and not the future, be grateful for what you have and more important enjoy what you have you will find peace of mind. By all means have ambitions but don’t live for your ambitions, spend a lot of time just’ being’ and feeling – not simply doing.
